Favourable weather conditions this morning gave us a really great start to resupply, with our ship arriving into Buckles Bay on schedule. If you have a mobile phone in your pocket you’re automatically greeted with a “Welcome to Macca!” text message when you come in range of the station GSM network, which is a nice touch on arrival.

We made the most of the good weather and got the required equipment and expeditioners ashore. I spent the day on the ship, but made the most out of some free time taking a few photos of the island, despite the low-hanging cloud sticking around all day.

If all goes well I might get into station tomorrow.
